I don't think there's gonna be room for CedBen or Grant next year.

Haha I lol'd at that. Come on, Coach, haven't you watched Ray Rice? Or Barry Sanders?!

He looked quick. The kind of back we've lacked for a while. I think he can be a good change of pace especially if we can get him involved in the passing game.

The kid reminded me of Samkon Gado who also helped give us a little pickmeup when we needed it.
Thankfully we had a running game to pick up the passing game yesterday.

Packers signed RB DuJuan Harris and WR Jeremy Ross from the team's practice squad.
Harris spent much of the preseason with the Jaguars before being claimed off waivers by the Steelers in late August. He's a smaller back with some speed. Ross was signed as an undrafted free agent out of California by the Patriots in 2011. Both players will be special teams contributors if active on game days.

A couple of things:

1) DeJuan Harris can ball. I absolutely love the fact that, despite being short, he constantly leaps forward when falling and picks up 1-2 yards extra. We may have something special in him - he seems to get to full speed in a couple of steps, and is really sudden. Honestly, not much to dislike about him, IMO.

2) Why on earth is Ryan Grant starting? He was unwanted up until a few weeks ago, and it's quite obvious that he is not the quickest or most talented back we have. So, um, why on earth is he starting? More importantly, WTF happened to Alex Green? He was active today, and I assume there is no nagging injury that prevented Green from getting carries. So not sure WTF is going on with Green, but Grant should be nothing more than a situational back.

Thank you, when I call Ryan Grant dog shit, I'm just an asshole. I'm glad other people can honestly critique a Packer. Gotta like Dejuan for the reasons u stated, and that he is one of those "hungry" players.

Eh, given the circumstances of the Packers injuries, I think Grant is nice immediate depth, even if it's only as a #3 RB. But honestly, he's probably better then Green at this point from a pure running stand point, and definitely deserves a spot on the Packers roster.

5.4 today for DuJuan.

Very nice. DuJuan, Jeremy Ross, and the Queens were all playing at a different speed today.

I really Harris to have a chance to establish himself as the starter. I don't care if he is from a practice squad. From what I saw, he earned yards beyond what the O-line gave him. It would be amazing if he can turn out to be our Ray Rice.

If you go technically Grant was the starting back, because he was on the field for the first offensive play. But in reality, we don't have a starting RB. It is just a matter of the play call.

Just because we could line up with 3 TE, Grant and Kuhn, doesn't mean we don't have any starting WR.
